dc.description.abstractHere is the 2012 printing of a book that first appeared in 2000. See our copy from that printing. There are suble changes. All reference to Pearson Learning has been removed. The front cover adds Aligns to the Common Core State Standards. The back cover adds the price ($19.95) and the new ISBN number. The paper of this edition seems thinner. As I wrote then, this large-format book (about 8 x 11) has plenty of learning helps for teachers and students in the early grades. Notice that it is meant as much for ESL students as for those learning English as a first language. The pages are all tear-out and reproducible. The versions are sometime disappointing. In GA (21), the ant gives the grasshopper a scarf and a jacket but no food. The good moral is that there is a time for work and a time for play. SW (36) is told in the poorer form. The lion (51) tells the caught mouse that he is going to make stew of him! In BW (76), only the boy's father is summoned each of three times. In TB (102), the bear supposedly tells the prone traveller that the fellow sojourner is not a true friend. This is my first experience of that message, and I wonder if it works. A bird tells the two goats who have fallen from the bridge to try it again by moving to the side to let each other pass (114). I think this advice misses the point. In GGE (125), the goose tells the owner that she can lay only one golden egg a day. He tries to shake the other eggs out of her, and she runs away after five days. Other stories include TH, TMCM, and CP. There are good simple illustrations along the way, with even a story wheel on 122, and flash-cards for use with each story.en_US
